By what standard are you measuring your life? As you surrender your heart to
Him then you are emptied of all but your trust. Because of His Spirit travailing in your heart to bring you to Him, hot mess is probably your middle name. He is always correcting us. He is always moving us closer. This is about what He is building in your
heart. We cannot possibly know all He is doing in us until He is finished, and as long as we are in our flesh, He will always ask for where we are.
Our flesh wasn't meant to stand in the glory (presence)
of God, our hearts are called there by Him.
Many are experiencing the travail of surrender. Like childbirth, travail is no fun. It is His Spirit in you bringing you to surrender to Him. This is His work
in you to make your heart perfect, which means completely in His presence and made one with Him. His presence in you will always burn in your heart. That is how He is bringing you into His arms. Your life is already in His hands.
Is The Lord
By Kathy Mote
It is the Lord who brought you to Him by speaking to your heart. It is the Lord who filled your heart with
desire for Him, and it burns in you day and night. It is the Lord who is building in you everything He desires. Why then, at this point, when you can hear and see Him, would you doubt where you are is the work of His hands.
There is something I would like to point out to you that maybe you don't understand. Right now many are losing the notion that they can understand by the thinking that God is good (what they like and approve of and understand) and the devil is bad
(what they do not like or approve of and don't understand). This is judging God by your human heart and holding Him accountable for the desires of your heart and your flesh.
There is a lot about God you
don't understand. You see life from the perspective of what you can see and what you have been shown. There's more to God than that. Actually, there's more to your life and there's more to Life than that.
remember when my children were first told dinner is now because bedtime is after, because you have school in the morning. Not used to the discipline of going to school every day and doing as they pleased with their time, their response was, Whaaaaaat?????
Oh, no waay! That is pretty much the same response our untrained (and not yet in His presence) hearts have before we are completely surrendered to God Who we cannot possibly see all of or fully understand. Not when we are looking at ourselves.
The only way to see Him is to be brought into His presence and that is what He is doing in us. We may count ourselves grateful for that. He didn't do this in any other generation until now. Now it is time. Again, something
we don't fully understand.
What He is doing is humbling you as He prepares your heart to enter a deeper knowledge of Him. Your response to Him is surrendering your heart. You feel poured out, emptied of
all that you held to make room for Him. You will soon be grateful, because He is taking you where you cannot go without Him and it is there you will be made whole and healed. No one 'finds' God, He finds them, and He brings them to Him to know His heart, which
is another way of saying healed. When you are brought into His arms, you lack no good thing.
But you cannot surrender something until He asks you for it, because you have
to be brought into His presence to give Him what He asks. That is when He will reveal His heart on the matter of where you are, and you have to call Him Lord to hear it. You can call on Him with a yearning heart, but then, a yearning heart is His invitation
to come. He is not a religion. He loves you, but He answers the heart that calls Him LORD. Right now many are being asked to surrender far more than their heart.

His presence is so beautiful and He is so powerful. He heals us as He brings us into His presence. He is making us as He desires. We continually yield, we feel broken, but that is our
surrender and it is sweet. It is our union with Him. He loves what He is doing in us. It is so wonderful and sweet and we are learning to trust Him in each moment. 🦋
As of Ten Minutes Ago
By Kathy Mote
As of ten minutes ago, I no longer have the thinking that I have anything to give Him. Everything belongs to Him. What I have, He
has given me. I recognize Him working in my heart. I know it is He that enables me to hear His voice. Because of His love being revealed to me, it isn't in my heart to want anything but Him. Because of His presence, I don't rebel. I am given comfort, even
when I don't understand what He is doing to make me stand. What I am is His gift. He has given me His heart and that's what lives in me.
